This is what we call a Paintbrush or an Americana.

CHallenge Yourself

Get out of your comfort zone. Learn to defend yourself, get in shape and make friends... all at once. What are you waiting for?

Pin the back of their hand down

  • Drive their hand down and pin the back of their hand flat on the ground. 
  • Their elbow should be bent at 90 degrees (or less in some cases, but never more).
  • They may try to extend their arm to defend themselves, so keep good control of their wrist with your hand. 

Reach under

  •  Your right elbow should be tight to their ribs.
  • Right arm reaches under their arm and grabs your left wrist. 
  • Your left elbow should stay tight beside their neck on the FAR side (away from our body, but same side as the arm we are attacking). 

Don't lift right away

  • People always want to lift right away but thats wrong. 
  • You want to SLOWLY drag your right elbow down to their hip. 
  • Most people will tap before you get there, so go slow. Can’t stress this enough.
  • If you do manage to get your elbow all the way down and they still haven’t tapped, THEN you can lift their elbow but be sure to keep the back of their hand pinned to the ground.
